Hello, may I take your coat?
I have a bit of an obvious point to make. This blog, quite simply, starts with you.
Actually, like many blogs, it started with me. I have started writing on this blog, as a way to find my better self; be in touch with my value; prioritize my wants; find what it is I really want to do with my life.
But then, I started interacting with my readers, getting comments, responding back, then emailing each other, getting encouragement, advice, thanks, and overall the feeling that I was making fantastic connections, and even: friends.
In the process, I’ve found out about a new lifestyle called minimalism, which consists in getting rid of unnecessary things in your life, to free your space, your mind, and your time. Life on less. It’s liberating!
While blogging has been an incredible adventure in which I continue to learn every single day, I still try to maintain my active lifestyle, running and participating in triathlons. (Bonus on this post: the least flattering picture one can dare to post on their own blog!)
For years now, I’ve also been pounding my career choices. So you will find a little bit of that here too. But not that much. I don’t have enough reasons to complain. Having a job these days, seems like it ain’t that bad after all. So right now, I just make the most of it!
